observations from a slightly mad german-american

Friday, December 19, 2003


For the technically inclined, I have never in my life had an unintentional out-of-memory error in programs I've written (well, except for this one module on an IBM mainframe where I used the wrong compiler setting and had everything running "below the line" -- akin to lower memory on the PC).

We actually managed to get that on our current project for a customer. I'm still nonplussed about it. Java GUI application is puking when we serialize an object to an XML string -- a 12MB xml string. I think we're going to start passing bytearrays to our webservice. 23kb for the same object when we serialize to that.
